This console bezel is for your three or four speed manual transmission 1969 Cougar. The 69 is unique over the 70 in that it has a provision for your seat belt buckles. This does not require an additional woodgrain insert, so it is not technically correct for your Cougar. We list this unit because there is no quality XR7 burl grained inserts available at this time and some customers prefer the clean uncluttered look of the plain camera case finish. Absolute perfection in every detail, if all reproductions were this nice there would be no market for used parts.
